What is Men in Sheds?

Men in Sheds is a place where like minded older men can come together, have a chat over tea and biscuits whilst learning new skills such as woodworking, IT, Art and much more...

Men in Sheds

The Shed aims to support older men aged 50 and over who may have experienced life changing events such as redundancy, retirement, bereavement and mental or physical ill-health.

It may be that you are just looking for something new to do!

It is a safe, supportive and friendly place to meet, where men can socialise, do a bit of light work or busy themselves doing a hobby or learn new skills.

'Shedders' will have access to facilities and workshop space where they can share and learn skills.MiS raised bed

It's an opportunity to get out and about and get involved in something new and different and continue to be happy and enjoy life as it should be.

What people have said...

"It puts fun and laughter back into life."
